NPR tweeted a story Sunday about people donating a whole lot of money to dig a big, pointless hole in the ground — a story that had absolutely nothing to do with ongoing recount efforts by Green Party candidate Jill Stein.
People Donated Nearly $100,000 To Dig A Big, Pointless Hole In The Ground https://t.co/5q2x3iuiUm

…BUT, savvy social media users made the connection anyway, considering how adequately it captured Stein’s pointless endeavor.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter that puts Stein’s endeavor in perspective:
.@NPR Donating to this is *almost* as worthless as donating to @DrJillStein ‘s vote recount scam.

.@NPR Jill Stein stealing money from the severely learning disabled.

@NPR is that how you describe the Stein recount fundraising?

@NPR Oops. I thought you were talking about Jill Stein’s recount.

@NPR Jill Stein? Oh.

@NPR Will it be deep enough to ensure we never hear from Hillary or Jill Stein again?
— Chris Clinkinbeard (@Clinkin53) November 28, 2016
@NPR More like $7 million. I think that’s more than @drjillstein raised for her own campaign.

@NPR Yup dumb masses will do this, and fund @DrJillStein thinking they can reverse a land slide loss by Clinton.
